I have installed www-plugins/google-talkplugin on my Gentoo. The main problem I faced is that no video is shown on my side.
Here is a solution:
echo "O3D_OVERRIDE_RENDER_MODE=2D" >> /opt/google/talkplugin/envvars
However, video effect do not work, so, I cannot put on a hat or a crown, but I see effect of other users.
I am curious to know if it is a problem of my proprietary ati-drivers or of the plugin itself?
The same problems occur in Opera, Firefox, and Chrome.
